Answer: 
Hi Paul,
No, PEX cannot be threaded. If you need to connect this pipe to a female connection, use a 1/2" MNPT SharkBite fitting. http://www.homedepot.com/p/SharkBite-1-2-in-Brass-Push-to-Connect-x-Male-Pipe-Thread-Adapter-U120LFA/202270505?keyword=u120lfa

Answer: 
Hello, if understand correctly you will not be using this for potable water distribution, that being the case it should be OK for you to glue fittings to these. If you do decide to glue, you will need to use CPVC fittings, not PVC because SharkBite PEX is Copper Tube Size and PVC is Iron Pipe Size the fittings for PVC are a different size. Another low cost alternative is you could use Plastic PEX Barb Read More
Hello, if understand correctly you will not be using this for potable water distribution, that being the case it should be OK for you to glue fittings to these. If you do decide to glue, you will need to use CPVC fittings, not PVC because SharkBite PEX is Copper Tube Size and PVC is Iron Pipe Size the fittings for PVC are a different size. Another low cost alternative is you could use Plastic PEX Barb fittings and stainless steel clamps, both sold in the PEX bay. This will hold up better than gluing CPVC fittings to PEX. Thank you for your interest in our products and good luck with your project. Read Less

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As advertised Great pipe, easy to use, but DO get the pipe cutting tool for square cuts. I did not and it took a bit to get ends square. I could have saved some time with the correct tool. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic So easy to work with. Made relocating my washer and dryer a breeze. Great product at a low low price. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product! We install piles of this stuff!!!! This pex in the straight lenghts is great. We keep this is red and blue stocked on our trucks. We have just about removed all CPVC from the trucks. The customers are awe struck when they see this stuff installed in the color coded fashion, and of course Plumb, level and square. September 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Every home handyman should have this in his garage All the plumbing I've ever done has been with copper piping and sweated or compression fittings. After moving to upstate New York the vast majority of the plumbing I've encountered is PEX tubing. I love it. It's so much more forgiving and easier to work with than ridged pipe. This five foot piece is great to have on hand for quick repairs. July 19, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install plumbing This system of plumbing can help to make even the "worst" of handymen into a "pro" plumber. Cuts easily. Can make minor bends. Installs easily as part of the entire Shark system. March 11, 2013
